Preview Misano

For the first time, Europe’s fastest racing series visits the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this weekend. Will the lap record fall at the Forza Fanatec event?

From 18 to 20 June, Misano will be the venue for round 3 of the BOSS GP Racing Series 2021. For the first time, the Big Open Single Seaters will stop at the Adriatic Sea and offer the pilots the unique chance to attack the lap record on the modern racetrack within sight of the popular seaside resort of Rimini. The current lap record is 1:25.380, set 13 years ago by Clivio Piccione during an Auto GP series race.

For many BOSS GP drivers, the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is new territory, as it is for the series in its 27th season. Two 30 minutes free practice sessions on Friday should help to familiarise with the 4.2-kilometre-long racetrack. To be on the safe side, one or the other pilot also put in a few practice sessions in the racing simulator.

The track has been in operation since 1972, the biggest reconstruction took place in 2006 and 2007, when the direction of the track was turned (now clockwise) to create more space for run-off areas. The track now has the highest safety standards, as do all the other tracks on the BOSS GP Racing Series calendar. Last weekend, the World Superbike Championship raced at Misano, other highlights in the 2021 schedule are the MotoGP and Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe events.

Preview & Guide Imola

BOSS GP brings back world-class motorsport to Italy this weekend.

The 26th BOSS GP racing season kicks off with Forza Fanatec in Imola (July 11th-12th), where the season finale is set to take place just 15 weeks later. The BOSS GP races are the first major motorsport event in Italy after the lockdown. Just like the races in Spa at the beginning of August (1-2), the meeting is a two-day event without spectators on site.

In Imola, there are a couple of new drivers and cars on the grid. All eyes are certainly on the 22-year-old Italian Riccardo Ponzio, who will make his debut with a 2002 Formula 1 car from Jaguar. With Ulf Ehninger (Benetton B197) and OPEN champion Ingo Gerstl (Toro Rosso STR1) two more Formula 1 cars are in the mix.

Other debutants are Austrian hill-climb specialist Christian Ferstl, former touring car ace Roman Hoffmann (both GP2) and Michael Aberer (AUT, WSbR). Also participating for the first time in the FORMULA class are Estonian Bruno Jarach and Italian Roberto Vanni, who will compete in the only Formula 3000 car.

They will take on champion Marco Ghiotto (Scuderia Palladio), Luca Martucci (MM International) and Florian Schnitzenbaumer (Top Speed), among others. We can also be excited about the first appearance of Salvatore De Plano in the A1GP Lola car of Coloni.

The new dry tyre from Pirelli in purple also makes its debut. This tyre is intended to enable experienced drivers to achieve faster lap times and make it easier for less experienced drivers to handle the “black gold”.

Modern and historic sports car and touring car series will round up the Gruppo Peroni event, as well as the Lotus Cup and the Alfa Revival Cup.
